Pulaski County 63, North Hardin 53


Somerset —

Goins meanwhile scored 16 of his game-high 19 points in the second half to help pick up the slack of Gover and Johnson.
Gover went ice cold in the second half, hitting but one free throw, while Johnson didn’t return to the game until only 1:28 was left in the third quarter.
However, the PC senior immediately made an impact upon his return to the game.
A Johson trey late in the third stanza gave PC a six-point lead, but North Hardin would respond yet again.
With just over two minutes left in the game and PC clinging to a 54-51 lead, the Maroons — as has been the case for much of the year — got the job done at the defensive end of the floor at crunch time.
PC got stops on five of the next six North Hardin possessions, and with guys like Goins, Hall, and Gover hitting some clutch free throws down the stretch, the Maroons were able to methodically build the lead back up to the final margin of 63-53.
“We played really well defensively tonight,” pointed out Gover.
“You know we had some things going on in this one with Kody going out of the game early in the first half, and then he didn’t get to play much at all in the second half,” added the PC coach. “Then, you think that Taylor only gets one point in the second half and Kody’s not in there that our chances would not be good. But, our other guys stepped up and made the plays for us, just like they have done all year long.”
Pulaski County — with the win over the Trojans — improved to 8-3 on the season and advanced to the championship game of the tournament, where the Maroons met up against arch-rival Southwestern.
